We’re pleased to be offering another six-week course of drawing lessons with Linda Hart for enthusiastic young artists aged 9-12. The programme covers a range of tried and true drawing exercises and challenges aimed at developing confidence and skill.

This term the focus will be the human face. Students will learn about the structure of the skull, the musculature of the face and how it controls expression, as well as how to capture the effect of light and shadow. They will develop confidence in capturing personal likeness and the likeness of others.

Students will work with pencil as well as other mediums. This course is suitable for students who enrolled in Term 1 as well as those new to the programme. All materials will be provided, including a sketchbook to keep.

Cost: $90

Ages 9 – 12 years

Bookings are essential. When you book online, you are booking for the full six-week course.
